How many years does an immigrant have to wait for his case to be treated in court?
By Hakan Sel

The wait for foreigners with pending cases in an immigration court can reach up to 1,450 days, that is to say more than four years, due to the traffic jams in the courts, an analysis of the independent Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse center warned on Friday ( TRAC ). The report details the impact that, due to the long waiting time, affects more than one million pending cases in immigration courts throughout the country. Until September 2019, 1,023,767 records were accumulated in the courts where 440 judges exercise throughout the nation. Despite the fact that the government of President Donald Trump has taken several measures to resolve the traffic jam, the average wait exceeds 1,400 days in California, Texas or Philadelphia courts.
